Academy of the Holy AngelsThe Academy of the Holy Angels, founded in 1879, is a private, Catholic college preparatory school dedicated to academic excellence in the education of young women.  Grounded in the gospel message and in the tradition and charism of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the Academy welcomes students from many different communities, ethnic backgrounds, and religious affiliations, appreciating the uniqueness of each individual while working towards the fulfillment of Jesus Christ's prayer "that all may be one."

Rooted in the conviction of the School Sisters of Notre Dame that "the world can be changed through the transformation of persons," education at the Academy empowers each young woman to reach the fullness of her potential spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, and physically, so that she, in turn, may share her gifts with others.  The vision of a new global community based on gospel values permeates life at the Academy, impelling each young woman to embrace generous leadership.
